Revised PBMS Counting Rules - Effective July 1, 2015

At its February 2015 meeting, the Performance Measures Committee approved revised counting rules for the organizational characteristics. The changes expand the counting rules for the Organization Inmate Population to include:  

 

•  Inmates housed in facilities not operated by the DOC, such as county or regional jail facilities or facilities operated by private vendors.

•  DOC Inmates housed in community-based facilities operated by the DOC, county, or private vendors. (If the DOC offender’s legal status is “inmate,” he/she should be included in the count for the organization inmate population.) 

 

The revised counting rules will go in effect for the July 2015 data.  Thus, for example, when reporting the January – June 2015 data, use the current counting rules for the organization characteristic data.  When reporting the July 2015 organization characteristic data, use the revised counting rules when reporting the characteristics of organization inmate population.  

 

Effective July 2015, the revised Counting Rules for the Organization Characteristics will be: 

 

Organization inmate population:

 

1. Organization inmate population on the last day of a given month includes:

  • Inmates in facilities operated by the DOC.
  • Inmates housed in facilities operated by other state(s)' correctional facilities under a contract for bed space.
  • Inmates housed in facilities not operated by the DOC, such as county or regional jail facilities or facilities operated by private vendors.
  • Inmates housed in community-based facilities operated by the DOC, county or private vendors.  (If the offender's legal status is "inmate," he/she should be included in the count for the organization inmate population.

2. Organization inmate population on the last day of a given month excludes:

  • Inmates under the inter-state compact agreement; these inmates should be counted by the receiving state.
